During this depressing epidemic, I saw an advert in ‘Joinmyband’ requiring an experienced bass player to form a trio. After several comms it sounded positive and I got quite excited about learning new material and I bought this bass. A few weeks later the main guy said that the drummer had lost interest and doesn’t want to gig anymore. I didn’t even meet them.
Anyway, the bass is for sale. As new condition. Fabulous sound. 
Cheers

Cheers Ash, it’s got quite a lot of resonance even with the flats. Some guys that do these utube demos are good players but seem to have lost what bass is.

Checked and it's a HCT therefore £649 new.

Still a decent saving. I have the regular HCT violin and they are a lovely guitar.

Bumpy.

The picture above is the Made in Germany one. This is the Designed in Germany model but still superior to the Epi Viola etc.

Anyone not tried a violin bass this is a snip at near 1/2 price with a hard case too.

Great for someone looking for a lighter weight. Great to learn on with smaller hands.

If I hadn't got one I'd jump at this.

Lovely wood.

Do you know where is was made Geoff?

I think the HCT are made in a Hofner factory in Beijing.

His playing is doing it no favours is it buzzy and indistinct.

Is that what you meant about wrong style? :D

I know I need one in my life, had a Shine version a few years ago and said I'd get a 'proper' one. I'll think about it Geoff.
